SurveyUSA Poll Shows Murphy’s Lead Gaining
Poll for KFOR shows Murphy Ahead 54-36 percent

(Edmond, OK) Republican Corporation Commission candidate Dana Murphy says the latest poll from SurveyUSA shows Oklahomans want someone with energy experience on the Commission.

“Once again the poll numbers bear out what we’ve been hearing across the state. Oklahomans want someone with real experience that they can trust on the Corporation Commission. The post is too important, directly affects too many pocketbooks and directly impacts the state’s economy. Oklahomans know they need a Commissioner with experience in the energy sector. They also want someone with deep roots to the state and someone who shares their conservative Oklahoma values.”

The SurveyUSA poll, done for Oklahoma City TV station KFOR, shows Murphy with an 18 point lead over her opponent, 54-36. No margin of error was given for the survey.

“Oklahomans want someone on the Commission with proven, real life experience in the private sector, not a career bureaucrat. They know I will be a watchdog for the interests of everyday Oklahomans and not just a lapdog for special interests."

Murphy, a fifth generation Oklahoman, spent ten years working in the oil patch as a geologist. After going to law school at night at OCU, she spent almost six years at the Corporation Commission as an Administrative Law Judge. Since leaving the bench, she has successfully operated her own oil and gas law practice, representing both producers and mineral owners.

Murphy served two terms as the Vice Chairman of the state Republican Party. She also serves as care chaplain and was previously on the board of trustees for Church of the Servant.

Keeping a tradition starting five generations ago, Murphy continues to help with her family’s farm and ranch operations in western Oklahoma.
